Dalvin Cook snubs Florida for FSU

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Running back Dalvin Cook, the No. 20 player in the ESPN 300, has made waves in his home state, switching his commitment from Florida to Florida State.

The 5-foot-11, 196-pound explosive playmaker from Miami/Central was a one-time Clemson commitment before flipping to the Gators in early April.

Cook plans to enroll early and arrive in Tallahassee in the coming days.

His commitment gives the Seminoles 27 verbal pledges in the 2014 class, including 13 four-star prospects, and the No. 6 overall recruiting class. Among the bevy of four-star prospects are 10 ESPN 300 commits.

Cook is one of four FSU commits playing in the Under Armour All-America Game, which kicks off Thursday at 4 p.m. ET on ESPN. He is joined by linebackers Kain Daub (Jacksonville, Fla./Sandalwood) and Jacob Pugh (Tallahassee, Fla./Godby), defensive tackle Dexter Wideman (Saluda, S.C./Saluda), who remains scheduled to visit South Carolina Jan. 17.

The Seminoles signed the ninth-ranked class in 2013, as well as the No. 2-ranked class in 2012 that included No. 1 overall Mario Edwards (Denton, Texas/Billy Ryan), No. 10 Eddie Goldman (Washington, D.C./Friendship Collegiate) and Heisman Trophy winner and No. 14 Jameis Winston (Hueytown, Ala./Hueytown).
